Happy-Sad-Mad

So, I’ve been having issues with the new job.  One manager in particular, whom everyone in the place hates, has been giving me trouble with my schedule.  Now I found out I have to resign.  I have to have surgery on my foot and because I haven’t passed my probationary period, they cannot approve a…

Review: It

Review: So it only took me forever, but not because the book was bad (obviously).  I’m just a slacker.   I don’t know what to say about it other than it is another gem from the master, Stephen King.  It was well written and had the right amount of creepiness, horror and humor.   There are…

Reading progress update: I’ve read 1000 out of 1168 pages.

So close I can see the light at the end of the tunnel!  This books is so creepy, but good.  I can’t wait to finally finish it. Original post: Virago77.booklikes.com/post/1611423/reading-progress-update-i-ve-read-1000-out-of-1168-pages

Still A Slacker…

Readathon: Hours 16-18

I made some good progress on It today, but I am beat and I have many things to do around the house to make sure I’m ready for my early Monday.  Plus I have to send time with my birthday girl. Though I couldn’t do the full 24, I have fun with the hours I managed. …

Readathon Update

Just under 16 hours in.  I managed to listen to It on audiobook before work, during my commute, and during my lunch break.  I went to an early b-day dinner with my my daughters and daughter-adjacent. and now I’m in my pjs in my bed with my Chevy enjoying more of that audiobook while I read…

Readathon: Hour 14

I finally made it home.  I’ve got n my PJ’s, my tummy is comfortably full, and now I can relax and read along while listening to the audiobook for a while. I think I may switch books in the next hour or so.

Readathon: Hour 0

I’m starting early because I have an 8-hour shift at work. *eyeroll*

Reathathon Time!

Dewey’s 24-Hour Readathon is this Saturday, and sadly, I have to work and 8-hour shift (that’s what I get for rejoining the workforce), and afterwards, I’m taking my kid out for an early birthday dinner.  The October readathon falls on or around her birthday every year, and usually it’s not an issue.  My kid always…

Such a slacker…

…the new job has kept me busy, beat, and slightly stressed, so this lovely box of books has been neglected.  But my Leeloo had decided to call attention to it by making it her new nap spot.   So cute; such a menace.  And now I’ve realized that I never posted my book hauls for…

Final Wordery Update

So my book finally came today.  It was much, much longer that 11 working days, but at least it came.  The box was actually really nice, but too big.    Which means my book slid around inside during transit, which means some of the corners of my book for gnarled.     And the free bookmark…

Happy Jason Voorhees Day!

Or Happy Friday the 13th as most people call it.     As per my family tradition, we will spend the day watching Friday The 13th movies and treat ourselves to pizza, fries and soda.   It’s also a celebration that I made it through three days of horrible training at my new job and have decided…
